"This will be the highest rated show in the history of Reality TV -Bigger than Idol" - Exclaimed Morton Schlocker, president of TLDC TV.
He elaborated: "Deserving prisoners about to be executed will be replaced -in a supreme act of Christian charity - by folks who have terminal illnesses - and who volunteer to take their place"
Martha Pipick, an eighty seven year old woman with terminal brain cancer said, "Merl Crumby is set to be electrocuted in Smallville Texas on July fifth - but I will happily go to the chair in his place."
Crumby has been on death row for fifteen years and he has reportedly turned to Christianity during his time in prison. The Supreme Court has ruled out his getting a review of the evidence in his case using new DNA science.
Ms Pipick explained: "Mr. Crumby has a wife and twelve children - he has found the Lord and is a changed person - and since the state of Texas is so bent on revenge - they can fry me!"
TLDC TV said today "We have already received hundreds of offers to participate in "Death Swap" - and we will be giving the families of each person who is executed fifty thousand dollars and pay all their medical bills."
Elise Mandelbaum - digibandit prison reporter - asked TLDC Prexy Schlocker; "Aren't you exploiting poor suffering souls who will die a horrible death - and letting extreme criminals go scot free?"
He responded; " Huh?" "It's all about LEARNING miss big tits!"
